Greenlit: Extreme Collectors, Slice

Extreme Collectors – Part road trip and part treasure hunt, host and professional appraiser Andrew Zegers travels across North America, visiting extreme collectors and revealing the shocking values of their collections.

Each episode of Extreme Collectors showcases four collectors and their prized collections comprised of hundreds, sometimes thousands of items. The collections are some of the largest in the world and have been amassed over decades. For the collectors, it’s about fulfilling a childhood dream, a love of pop culture or preserving history. In almost every case, they are unaware of the true market value of their passion and are astonished by Andrew’s appraisals.

The collections, valued between $20,000 and $15 million, include a mix of highly sought after collectibles and unassuming items packing jaw-dropping value. From vintage memorabilia to toys, and sports memorabilia to extremely rare and unusual artifacts, Andrew searches across North America for the high end, the extraordinary and the bizarre.

A few highlights include:

  •  Emmy and Golden Globe nominated actor and director Corbin Bernsen shares his collection of 8,000 snow globes and is shocked when he finds out that his collection is worth more than double than what he expected.
  • Veteran actor, director and producer Penny Marshall shows off her amazing collection of sports memorabilia worth millions.
  • A beer can collection in Philadelphia, consisting of over 80,000 cans is appraised at $1.6 million.
  • A Brantford, ON native shares his collection of 15,000 videogames, the largest collection in Canada.
  • A Cadillac collection based out of London, ON is appraised at a whopping $12.5 million.
  • A Florida collector with a Guinness Book of World Records yo-yo collection is gob-smacked when one of the yo-yos in his collection is appraised at $80,000.
